    Hi! I've made an ADR for 8:25 am for the CP on 11/25, with a main reason being the great photo opportunities with Cinderella's Castle. How far ahead of 8:25 am could we enter? 7:40 am? Also, staying in FW loop 2000. Should we drive or take the bus/boat?

    Hi Vern!


    Congratulations on your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!


    You will not experience any problems making it to your Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) at 8:25 a.m. at The Crystal Palace. Theme park buses start running about an hour prior to the earliest reservation time. The water taxis may not be operating that early, but it certainly doesn't hurt to inquire with your resort's Concierge the night before. If you have your own vehicle, I would recommend driving. Alternatively, you can take a taxi cab to your breakfast reservation. Again, if relying on Disney's transportation system, be sure to allow at least one hour for travel time. As you already mentioned, you'll be enjoying the added bonus of being able to take pictures on a virtually empty Main Street U.S.A., and Cinderella's Castle without crowds in the background! Please let me know if I can answer any other Disney Vacation planning questions for you.


    Enjoy a most magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
